Brian Wolfenden, Director of Marketing Communications for Presstek reports, "Recent research conducted by InfoTrends/CAP Ventures found that a successful product demonstration is critical to making a buying decision when acquiring a DI press. These open houses allow our sales organization to conduct product demonstrations at locations that are more convenient to our customer base. As a result, we have increased our open house activity by 30% over 2005 as well as continued to support industry trade shows."
"During 2005, over 500 printing companies took advantage of the opportunity to attend a Presstek open house, resulting in a significant number of decisions to purchase Presstek products. We expect the number of attendees to increase in 2006 with our more extensive schedule and already stepped up sales activity," said Emile Tabassi, Presstek's Vice President of Sales for North America. Tabassi adds, "These sessions provide a convenient educational venue for customers to learn first-hand about digital technologies that can significantly improve their business results."
